The "Statement of Account" shows the balance due as of the statement date. The statement date will be the most recent month end. However, for full time students registered in the 16 week Day Campus program the statement date may reflect the first day of class instead of the most recent month end.
Charges for tuition, fees, room and board, and related instructional costs are due by the first day of class for each session. Other charges are due within 30 days after being recorded on your account.
Financial aid that will be used to pay charges is recorded on accounts beginning the second week of class. Your balance will continue to show an amount due until the aid has been recorded.
If you have entered into a deferred payment plan, please pay according to that schedule. Your payment plan may be viewed by clicking the "Payment Plans" tab.
Pending Financial Aid - Students enrolled full time in the 16 week Day Campus program may have pending financial aid shown on the statement. This aid is an estimate and is subject to change. Pending Financial Aid is not shown on statements for student enrolled part time, or in any eight week session.
Future due - Charges are for sessions that have not yet started. You do not need to pay this amount at this time. However, payment is due by the first day of class.
Current - Charges are currently due or have been deferred with a payment plan.
Number of days - Charges are past due and are due immediately.
Remittance can be made by credit card (MasterCard, Visa or Discover), or as a direct deduction from your bank account (U.S. personal checking or savings account). Corporate checking accounts cannot be used to make online payments.
Payment may be made at the Enrollment Service Center at the main campus in Columbia, Missouri or at any Nationwide Campus location.
In most cases, payments are recorded immediately. On rare occasions, our student account system is taken offline for maintenance. Payments made during these times are recorded within one business day.
Generally, one or two business days.
You can check the following to verify successful payments:
Contact the Enrollment Service Center at the number listed above for assistance.
Yes. To set up a payment for a future date, proceed to make a payment. On the screen "Step 2: Payment Options", change the "Payment Date" to your desired date. The payment will automatically be processed on the date you specify. You may change or delete scheduled payments until the day before the scheduled payment.
You can save credit card or checking/savings account information so it does not have to be entered each time. Select "My Profiles", then "Payment Profiles" and complete the desired payment information. You can change or delete this information at any time. Columbia College personnel do not have access to credit card numbers and cannot create unauthorized payments. Only you can schedule and delete saved payments though this system.
Select "My Profiles", then "Payment Profiles". Edit or deleted the desired payment method.
Yes. Click "My Profiles", then "Payment Profiles". Edit the appropriate card information.
No. Only the person that sets up a saved payment method can use it. A student does not have access to see or use an authorized user's saved payment profiles. Likewise, an authorized user cannot use a student's saved payment profile.
This often occurs when a credit card has expired and the card is no longer viewable as a payment method, however, the card information is still stored. To correct this, update the expiration date. Click "My Profiles", then "Payment Profiles" and change the expiration date on the expired card. That card will now be available to use.
Your credit card probably has expired. Click "My Profiles", then "Payment Profiles" and change the expiration date on the expired card.
The student ID is available under the "My Profiles" tab, or is available on the face of a billing statement under the "eBills" tab.
If you received this message, our records indicate you may owe for the courses, even after deducting financial aid. By setting up a payment plan, we will compute estimated charges and financial aid. The payment plan will show due dates and amounts due.
If you are required to set up a payment plan, but do not, the courses you registered for through eRegistration will be canceled.
There are two ways to pay your account in full:
The following are reasons why Financial Aid may not be figured into your payment plan.
Financial aid that is included in a payment plan will automatically adjust as your enrollment or financial aid change. For example, suppose you have a Pell Grant and register for 3 credit hours in an 8 week session. Only half of the Pell Grant will be included in your payment plan. If you add another 3 credit hours, for a total of 6 hours, the Pell Grant included in your plan will automatically be figured at the full time rate, and your plan will adjust accordingly.
This message is received when total credits, such as payments or financial aid, exceed tuition and other charges. You cannot set up a payment plan in this situation since the balance to defer is $0. Sometimes, payments are coded to wrong terms which cause this message. Please contact Registration and Financial Services if you need additional assistance.
Schedule Payments will be automatically paid on the due date specified. You must set up a saved payment profile which will be used to make the payment.
Payment Plan Installments will not be paid automatically. You will be required to make payment by the due date.
This message is received when our system is unable to show current activity on your student account. A payment plan cannot be set up when this message is received. Often, this is a temporary outage, and is resolved if you try to set up a payment plan a second time, or click the "Recent Account Activity" button. If this does not work, please log out, then log back in.
No, not at this time.
